Buchanan falls in love with Tennessee
Georgia who has snatched up offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech and Louisville among others. Tennessee has yet to extend a scholarship to the senior, but he visited Knoxville a handful of times in the summer and fall, immediately realizing Tennessee was a place he wouldn't mind calling his temporary home. Buchanan made the trek to Rocky Top for the Florida-Tennessee game Oct. 4 and said he was blown away with the atmosphere and pageantry surrounding the matchup. “I came over here over the summer, so that’s when I really fell in love with it, like the vibe and stuff,” he said. “They always told me about the vibe, but they said it’s nothing until you get to a real game, so I came up here to the Tennessee-Florida game and it was crazy.” Buchanan is committed to Louisville right now but his status could change as he continues to receive offers. If he does finally land one from Tennessee, it could sway him out of his verbal agreement and into the hands of Butch Jones and his staff. “You know how they always say fall in love with the environment, not the coaches, but the (aura) of the place,” he said. “I loved it.” No matter where the 5-11, 170-pound corner does decide to go, however, his dad and de facto NFL trainer will support his decision and continue to help him when the recruiting process is all said and done. "My dad is going to support me no matter where I go," Buchanan told Scout. "He is down for whatever I do and wherever I go. He is taking me on trips, he is looking at depth charts and academics with me, and he will be there for me no matter which school I choose."
